As Rob says, I think we should take a look at SSSD and system logs.

Can you paste or attach the couple of lines that are appended to
/var/log/secure during the login attempt? That should give us a clue on
whether the SSSD PAM modules are contacted.

Can you also add "debug_level = 8" to the [pam] and [domain/$name]
sections of the SSSD, restart the SSSD and paste or attach
/var/log/sssd/sssd_pam.log and /var/log/sssd/sssd_$name.log ? Feel free
to sanitize the logs before sending them out.
